Chevy Blazer EV Back on Sale with Much Lower PriceChevrolet
  • Chevrolet is resuming sales of the 2024 Blazer EV after a software-related stop sale.

  • Prices are down significantly from before, now starting at $50,195 for the LT AWD model.

  • An even more affordable LT FWD version will arrive later this year with a sub-$50,000 starting price.

Chevrolet is resuming sales of the 2024 Blazer EV after a software-related stop sale order was issued early in the launch of this new model. The company says it has made "significant software updates" to correct various issues that owners were experiencing. To entice buyers back, Chevy is also dropping prices significantly, by between $5600 and $6500 depending on trim level.

GM first reported sales of the Blazer in the third quarter of 2023 and issued the stop sale late in the fourth quarter. It only reported 482 Blazer EV units sold overall. Chevrolet did not detail exactly the problems that owners were experiencing, but InsideEVs reported issues with charging the vehicle, and Edmunds bought one of the early units and reported a long list of faults having to do with everything from drive motor control modules to driver-assistance systems.

The Blazer EV LT AWD now starts at $50,195, while the RS costs $54,595 with all-wheel drive and $56,170 with rear-wheel drive (the RWD version is more expensive because it comes with certain option packages as required extras). Chevrolet also says that the Blazer is eligible for the $7500 federal tax credit.

It is worth noting that the Blazer EV is still slightly more expensive than its platform-mate, the 2024 Honda Prologue, which starts at $48,795. That may change when Chevy launches the LT FWD configuration, which it says will start at under $50,000. The Prologue has yet to go on sale, so it was never subject to the same stop sale order. We're also still waiting for pricing details for the Blazer EV's high-performance SS model and an additional front-wheel-drive configuration for the RS trim, both of which are said to arrive later on.

Chevy says that this software update brings a few new features including ambient lighting with selectable colors and a revised digital gauge cluster with new graphics that now includes a battery percentage display.
